MOSCOW, August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian, Ukrainian foreign ministers discussed practical issues related to humanitarian aid to people in south-east Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said after telephone talks between the two ministers on Friday. Sergei Lavrov and Pavlo Klimkin noted the need for a more urgent and responsible participation of international structures engaged in fulfilling a humanitarian aid mission in south-east Ukraine.
There are reports about direct threats for the use of force against Russian humanitarian aid convoy for south-east Ukraine, the ministry said.
“Reports are coming that a sabotage group of punitive battalion Aidar plans to mine some sections of roads in the Luhansk region in order to destroy a humanitarian aid convoy and personnel guarding it and then accuse militia of terrorist activity,” the diplomatic agency said.
